    One thing I hate that most people do. Buy cheap foulies. Seriously. Spend a bit more money, buy the better brand (slam, henry loyd) and it will last longer, and be ALOT more comfortable.

    I usually try and pay with money!

    Every now and they I have to barter with wives and children, and occasionally sheep, but not to often.

    there's a reason my yard is so clean, it's full of sheep!

    as far as women and children, I traded my stocked options

    I promise you, if your yard is full of sheep, it is not clean!

    Not sure what a "stocked option" is, but it must have been worth a lot. So how do you keep them. Do you feed and clothe them with the sheeps?

    I dress up in a Girl Guide uniform and sell cookies in the spring.

    In the winter, I stand outside the shopping center and ring a bell.

    Seems to work.

    "An XD kicker would make me so much faster, it really would, no really it would, they're really great, maybe I can get one second hand on ebay cause they are really expensive but it will make such a difference, oh I am so happy when I am sailing, and if I could just have that bit more control it would be perfect,the new kicker would do it, you know it has 15 to 1 purchase, I'll look on ebay, no, not one today, no, not one today,no, not one today,no, not one today,no, not one today,no, not one today,no, not one today,no, not one today,no, not one today,no, not one today,no, not one today,no, not one today,no, not one today,no, not one today,no, not one today,no, not one today,no, not one today,no, not one today, ...... Oh, OK dear if you are sure I'll order it from Rooster this afternoon."
